On the Feast of the Transfiguration, Our Lady gave the title that She would be known as in Her apparitions of Medjugorje. The title of Our Lady in all of Her apparition sites throughout history helped to define why She came and what Her mission was. On August 6, 1981, She told the visionaries who She was. Though on July 26, She told the visionaries that She was the Blessed Virgin Mary, it was on August 6 that She gave Her title:
for the first time. This is the most recent title given to Our Lady in the Litany of Loreto. It is significant also because of the region Our Lady chose to appear in where three major religions coexist together, but with a bloody history of war and persecution between them over many centuriesâ€”Catholics, Orthodox and Muslims.
